K9100D Innovates Portable Vibration Calibration

THE MODAL SHOP, INC. announces the K9100D, portable vibration calibrator kit. The K9100D makes the sometimes daunting task of calibration and field check of vibration monitoring systems a quick and easy process. This calibrator kit is a battery powered, self-contained unit, designed to perform accurate calibrations with ease. The K9100D calibrates a wide array of critical machinery vibration monitoring sensors including accelerometers, velocity transducers and proximity probes to verify and ensure critical monitoring functionality. This calibrator can be used for anything from confirming alarm trip points in the plant to validating entire vibration measurement channels. The onsite calibration process allows end-to-end functionality checks while avoiding the expensive downtime required when sending sensors out for calibration.

A simple and easy to use interface makes calibration an intuitive process. With frequency capabilities ranging from 7 Hz to 10 kHz (420 to 600k CPM) over an amplitude range of up to 20 g (196 m/s2), the K9100D portable vibration calibrator is a powerful and versatile tool for field test engineers as well as laboratory technicians. The K9100D helps to produce NIST-traceable calibrations in a matter of minutes, and conforms to the ISO 9000 quality standard and ISO 17025 requirements for calibration of vibration sensors and proximity probes.

The K9100D is a robust instrument designed for the industrial environment. Housed in a heavy duty, rugged Pelican® case shell, the durable shaker element boasts a resilient carbon fiber shaker suspension system. An integrated precision reference accelerometer and state-of-the-art digital electronics provide superior control with backlit LCD display. Greatly improved battery life extends in-the-field operation up to 18 hours. Built-in storage allows the external power supply, supporting tools and accessories to be stowed directly inside the case. The complete K9100D testing kit includes a series of mounting accessories that calibrate virtually any vibration sensor, including 1/4-28 threaded mounting platforms and bases for adhesive, magnetic and custom thread patterns. A precision, broadband Fluke® Digital Multimeter (DMM) is included in the kit configuration to provide data in the field. Once data is collected, a supplied Excel spreadsheet macro simplifies data entry and creates automated ISO 17025 compliant customizable calibration certificates and reports. The only additional items required for performing calibrations are the sensors themselves with appropriate user-supplied signal conditioning.

Serving the vibration community for over 40 years, both The Modal Shop and PCB Group focus on continuing innovation and process simplification. They simplify people’s lives with smart solutions that help improve the performance of people, products and processes. The K9100D is an excellent addition to the full line of proven, elegant calibration solutions from The Modal Shop.
